fighters, the largest program in pentagon history, said the relationship with lockheed, the number one contractor, was the worst he had ever seen. $75 billion has been spent in this program to date. did you agree with that assessment? how could that happen, that relations are so bad with the number one contractor on the number one program in the pentagon's inventory? >> i do not know that i would portray it in those terms. these are difficult negotiations, as they always are, when you are dealing with, you know, the amount of money and complexity that is involved with the joint strike fighter. so there are tough negotiations going on, but i am confident that both parties, as we know from just the nature of these kinds of negotiations, that both parties will ultimately reach a solution. i am not convinced that this has reached a point where we have dead-ended in terms of our ability to find a way out. i think both of us understand that the joint strike fighter is important -- to our security and to the companies that are involved here -- and i think ultimately, it will be resolved. >> y

of power and influence. just as in the united states, the pentagon gave more influence in the state department and others perhaps. same thing in syria. the national security apparatus is very influential. there's some dispute as to how much influence he has over his brother. he is very come every popular amongst the alawite militias as well as the alawite dominated security apparatus and alawite armies. the brother-in-law had been influential. yet then in my view somewhat marginalized in recent years. but again, with a security solution chosen by the regime come he seemed to elevate a little bit until he was killed over the summer. >> host: what about bashar al-assad may surprise people? i read one interview where he said he became an eye doctor because there's no blood involved. just go he told me -- i asked that same question, why did she become an eye doctor? he didn't say he didn't like what, but he lacked the precision of it. he liked the fact that she can cure somebody, you can do some things they can't see them they can't see or they're blurry vision and then they see more cl

these appointments the 70's but what were the big cases? essentially forced nixon out of office and the pentagon papers case they approve school busing. they ended the death penalty in the united states in 1972 and put it back in 1976 and still the most controversy decision of the mall, 1973, roe v wade says states can no longer ban abortion, it was a seven through code to opinion and the only ones were appointed by president kennedy and william rehnquist, three of the four nixon justices were in the majority and i think that tells you a lot about where the republican party was in the 1970's, 1975 william douglas stepped down and president ford nominated john paul stevens to replace him in the confirmation hearing he wasn't asked a question because it wasn't a part of the political dialogue in a way that it later became. the big issue, the big change began in 1980 with the election of ronald reagan because he brought with him to washington a very underrated figure in the recent history, some i don't think this is due as an important area and that is edwin meese because he was first an advisor an

the investigation? we are confirming this morning, one of my colleagues, justin fisher at the pentagon, producer, that the fbi 20 days later still has not set foot in banghazi. >> i would guess the fbi is trying. and my guess is that he -- the individual who makes the decision has decided that the situation's still not safe for that team of people to go in. obviously every day that goes by means that the -- the scene will have been sufficiently disturbed, that the likelihood of their learning much diminishes with every passing day. >> greta: how could it not be safe for our fbi who are pretty well trained for security, yet it was safe for our ambassador and others to be there? >> it wasn't safe. >> greta: well, no, but the thinking. i mean, obviously it wasn't, because they were killed. but the thinking that the fbi are not tough enough and armed enough and ready to go and investigate that, because as you say as time marches on, we lose evidence, we lose information. >> sure. i think that once an event like that happens, and the people are killed, it's clear that they misjudged the security situ
